Last week the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden announced a gift of over 35 seminal works by artist Marcel Duchamp, donated by D.C. collectors Aaron and Barbara Levine. The gift includes a cross-section of Duchamp’s works incorporating his influential pioneering and conceptual ideas, making the Hirshhorn’s Duchamp holdings one of the most extensive, in-depth public collections in the country.

The collection is complemented by 15 portraits, related photographs and works on paper by Duchamp’s contemporaries including Man Ray, Tristan Tzara, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, and Irving Penn, among others.
